Two diplomas instead of one
It’s expected that starting from 2015 Belarusian students will have an opportunity to simultaneously receive a British diploma
In April 2014, the Education Ministry of the Republic of Belarus and the Association of Business Executives (ABE) signed a memorandum that stipulates mutual recognition of certain disciplines in case of simultaneous studies at both Belarusian and British higher educational establishments, as well as a mutual recognition of diplomas.
“Belarus is now finalising the procedure of harmonisation of all issues connected to the implementation of the memorandum provisions,” noted German Artamonov, Deputy Head of Education Ministry’s Department for International Co-operation. “I suppose that the British side will soon receive the documents, including technical ones, regarding the further work on the implementation of the provisions of the memorandum.”
The representative of the Education Ministry underlines that the procedure of mutual recognition of education diplomas will make it easier for international students to obtain education and will facilitate the training of the professionals that are in demand of the national economies of the countries who are parties of such agreements.
“The aim pursued by the two organisations is to create comfortable conditions for students who want to get a high-quality education and receive two diplomas,” said Vadim Titov, CEO of Magna Carta College Oxford Business School. “One of these degrees is acknowledged and recognised in the countries that understand the value and quality of Belarusian education while the second degree opens great opportunities in the world due to the recognition of ABE diplomas in more than 80 countries worldwide.”
